Anyone who produces, processes, sells, buys, imports, exports or transports any varieties of raw leaf tobacco will be required to hold a raw leaf tobacco registration certificate effective January 1, 2015. Once registered, you will be required to complete reports regarding your raw leaf tobacco activity.
To assist those impacted by the new regulation, the ministry is hosting an education session (approximately 2 hours) in the following communities to review registration and reporting requirements:
